Adedamola Adefolahan, known professionally as Fireboy DML, is a Nigerian singer. He is signed to YBNL Nation, a record label founded by Nigerian rapper Olamide. His debut studio album Laughter, Tears and Goosebumps was released in 2019.
Award-winning Afrobeats maestro Fireboy released the track list for his third studio album ‘Playboy’ on Thursday, 28th July 2022 via his social media platforms.
Guest appearances on the album: The track list revealed a number of local and international guest appearances that listeners will enjoy from the forthcoming album. Rema, Chris Brown, Sheshea, and Euro join Asake and Ed Sheeran has a featured artist on the album.
International Appeal: The tracklist suggests that Fireboy is at the point in his career where he feels bold enough and that the timing is right to make a play for the international market.
This is evident in the choice of Chris Brown and Shensea. This confidence is likely inspired by the impressive international success of ‘Peru’ remix featuring Ed Sheeran.
Grammys on his mind: Also, Fireboy might have the Grammys on his mind as ‘Change’, ‘Afro Highlife’, and ‘Glory’ suggests an attempt to explore soundscapes that appeal to the Academy.
When is ‘Playboy’ dropping?: Fireboy is set to release ‘Playboy’ on August 5th, 2022. The album will be his third album in four years after releasing ‘Laughter, Tears, and Goosebumps’ in 2019 and ‘Apollo’ in 2020
.The Fireboy and Rema collaboration however came as a shock to many who could not believe such a collaboration could come to life as many like myself had missed the hint dropped by both acts when Rema starred in the video of the track ‘Playboy.’
